Abstract:

The mechanical properties of five glass fiber sheet molding compounds are investigated in this research program. The materials studied are SMC-25, SMC-3O, SMC-65, SMC-C20R3o and XMC-3. The specific properties include the tensile, compressive and shear response, as well as the strain rate sensitivity, impact resistance, notch sensitivity, statistical strength properties and bolted joint characteristics. A discussion of experimental test methods includes an evaluation of three shear test methods and a description of non-destructive inspection techniques.
